Just because you can’t get exactly the right ingredients for an authentic dish, doesn’t mean to say you can’t make your own version. This is what I’ve done when making a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. You could get hung up on not having a hoagie roll, Cheese Whiz, and ribeye steak, but ultimately use good quality ingredients that you love to make the best meatiest, cheesiest sandwich ever!
- 300g Skirt Steak
- 2 Submarine Rolls
- 2 tbsp Haynes Gourmet Candied Jalapeno Relish (Buy Here)
- 4 Rashers of Smoked Pancetta (optional)
- 1/2 Sweet White Onion
- 4 Slices American Cheese
- 1 tsp Garlic Granules
- Salt and Pepper
- Slice the steak against the grain, 0.5cm thickness.
- Season with garlic granules, salt and pepper.
- In a dry pan, cook the pancetta until crispy and set aside.
- Dice the onion and using the same pan, season and fry the onion until translucent. Put to one side.
- Cut the bread lengthways, not quite all the way through, toast until lightly golden.
- Lay the cheese inside the toasted bread.
- In a hot dry pan, flash fry the steak, hot and fast, until charred on one side. Turn over briefly, stir in the onions and relish, and remove from heat (N.B. Careful not to overcook. Skirt steak should be cooked medium/medium-rare or it will be chewy.)
- Add the steak, onion and relish mix and the pancetta to the cheesy bread and serve immediately.
